Re: My 2 cents on dino-artists
I think I want to vote for Willis O'Brian for dinosaur artist of the
century (that influenced the most people).
The two modern dinosaur artists I like to have hanging on my wall are
Mark Hallet and William Stout. They both make good-looking art besides
doing nice dinosaurs. Very nice color sense, good use of line, good
composition, technically well painted, plus they do a good job of
putting in the REST of the landscape around the dinosaurs. (besides,
the dinosaurs look good)
Sadly, I haven't been exposed to the European or Japanese dinosaur
illustrators as much as I want, and don't know have any names. Anyone
recommending any non-US illustrators?
